Motherboard with HDMI?
« on: August 29, 2007, 09:54:05 pm »
Just bumping this question...

I am looking for a motherboard that is known as compatible, with decent integrated NVIDIA chipset (or something else that will support full UI2), that has an HDMI output.

Has anyone any experience that can share??

Not really - but someone else started a topic talking about Abit motherboards with HDMI, and I am hoping for an answer on that one soon! I think this thread is stale, so do a search for that one with Abit and HDMI as search terms...

Oh man, I'm sorry. I heard horrible things about that Biostar board....supposedly they rushed it to market to try to beat Abit to the punch, and it's got all sorts of weird problems. One can only hope it's not design-related and that a bios update will iron them out eventually.

Gigabyte has some too (see http://www.giga-byte.es/products/mb/specs/ga-ma69g-s3h_10.html) the problem is that all MB with hdmi i could find where not able of displaying 1080p video (just 768) as they have graphics chipsets that don't support full HD (are just HD ready).

Hi Colin,

We are testing the MSI MS-7329 motherboard (see link to manual below) this has on-board 6150 graphics and an HDMI port;

http://217.110.237.67/Manuals/7329-engl%20v1.0%20-%20MS-7329%20(G52-73291X1).pdf

We're running this board at 720p over component & HDMI and it performs beautifully. The board supports 1080p too but we have not tested that yet... will give feedback when we do ;-)

We've tested it with UI2 + Overlay and it works great... but I don't think we've tested UI2 + transparency. I'll take a look at that on Monday and post an update here then.

Andrew

Any results on 1080p HDMI?

How about the other model, MSI K9AGM2-FIH that lacks the RCA outputs, but has HDMI and 5.1 analog/SPDIF for only about $50-65?

The MSI K9AGM2-FIH uses an AMD ATI chipset so you are at the mercy of the ATI Linux drivers. LMCE uses all of the most advanced (and difficult/buggy/ hard to implement) features of the graphics interface. And only Nvidia has support for them today, just barely above experimental status. There has been lots of discussion about ATI, and Intel drivers but support for compositing and opengl isn't what it is for nvidia yet. As soon as it is available on something else and it works better we will all move.
